Petition to Repeal U.S. Ban on Syringe Exchange Programs circulates

Sign the Position Statement – Syringe Exchange Program Ban Position Statement.

This December, Congress reinstated a ban on the use of federal funds for Syringe Exchange Programs (SEPS), both domestically and internationally. However, the research has shown time and again that these programs are hugely effective in the prevention of HIV/AIDS among its highest-risk communities.

This petition is a powerful and unified statement by leaders in the HIV/AIDS global health community.  It also closes at midnight TONIGHT so I hope you’re compelled to sign right now!

 

One Response so far.
